The Honda Civic Type R (FK2) is the fourth generation of the Honda Civic Type R sports hatchback.
Named as Honda Civic Type-R, the Honda Civic Type R was added in the Munich Update as a Championship car. It is the highest-ranked Class C car, with a starting rank of 1135, a MAX rank of 1417 and a MAX+PRO rank of 1587. The Civic gets a rank boost of +58 from Tuning Kits.
Despite the Honda Civic Type-R's high nitro boost and good nitro efficiency rating of 6/9/12 (the same as the Renault DeZir and ED Design Torq), the Civic's maximum speed, at MAX+PRO with level 3/perfect nitro active and without a Tuning Kit applied, is only 251.6 mph (405.1 km/h), making it 1.4 mph (2.3 km/h) slower than a MAX+PRO Renault Alpine Celebration, which is itself slower than both the Mercedes-Benz CLA 45 AMG Racing Series and Sbarro Sparta.
The Civic also accelerates, handles and drifts worse than the Alpine (although its cornering and drifting ability is better than the CLA 45's or Sparta's) and its high nitro boost is countered by its much lower top speed—without factoring in nitro, the Civic is a whopping 19.6 mph (31.5 km/h) slower than the Alpine. On longer maps and on tracks where nitro management is crucial, such as Tokyo, the Civic cannot beat an Alpine at a similar rank unless the driver of the Civic is extremely skilled at snaking. On more technical tracks, such as Dubai or Sector 8, the Alpine's greater speed and acceleration, as well as its better handling and drifting, means that it will usually beat the Civic unless if it wrecks and the Civic does not.
This is the official review of the Honda Civic Type-R on the Asphalt YouTube channel, made by ASL_Tae Hwan Kim and published on December 7, 2017:
Time to reach end of Tokyo straight: 7.788s
Perfect nitro duration: 11.649
Triple nitro duration: 8.382
French Guiana lap time: 1.04.350s
Final verdict: "Honda Civic Type-R is a great car for its rank. It has a great acceleration and nice handling (considering its nitro stats). Plus, it's awesome nitro duration will help you finish a lap without using extra tank on many tracks. But it's low top speed and wide drift radius make it inferior to the Renault Alpine and Sbarro Sparta."
The Honda Civic Type-R is even less suitable for multiplayer races compared to a similarly-ranked Renault Alpine Celebration, Mercedes-Benz CLA 45 AMG Racing Series or Sbarro Sparta, due to it having no distinct advantages over any of them. Exacerbating this is that, due to its starting and MAX+PRO rank, any potential multiplayer tune puts the Civic in direct competition with multiplayer favorites, such as the BMW M2 between ranks 1100-1350, Shelby Cobra 427 between ranks 1200-1300, Mercedes-Benz SLK 55 AMG Special Edition between ranks 1250-1600, TVR Sagaris between ranks 1300-1400, Chevrolet 2016 Camaro SS between ranks 1300-1500, and a combination of the McLaren Mercedes MP4-25, SIN R1, BMW 3.0 CSL Hommage and Aston Martin Vulcan at ranks above 1500. For this reason, the Civic is a poor choice for multiplayer, regardless of its tune.
The Honda Civic Type-R's Car Mastery challenges awards two Champion Kit Boxes—one at Mastery Challenge 5 and another at Mastery Challenge 12—and completion of all its Mastery Challenges awards a total of 35, the second highest in all of Class C, behind the McLaren M14A's 52. It is also one of the few cars with a Season 9 race set in the newer Munich Subway track, which makes its Season 9 race good for practicing on the map, with its moderate length awarding a decent (but not fantastic) amount of 5500+ per race.
The Honda Civic Type-R can be assembled after collecting 16 of its Common rarity BP cards. Assembling the Civic takes 5 hours but can be skipped for up to 289. It costs 1,374,150 or 9,975 to MAX out. Pro Kits require 743,475, as well as 13 of each Class C part, 16 i4 Engine cards, 10 each of Early Tech and Initial Tech cards and 8 Mid-Tech cards.
